Yes, I kind of have my own private Prelinger channel at home!!! I have a sort of "entertainment center computer" connected to my stereo and my TV, equipped with a sound card (for listening to MP3s and internet radio streams on my stereo), and--the most important part--a hardware MPEG decoder card with S-Video output (A RealMagic Hollywood+ to be specific), which allows me to watch the MPEGs from the Prelinger collection and others here in full-screen, full-motion, broadcast-quality (if it's a MPEG-2 file) glory, on my TV set!!! In fact, this is really the only way I watch the Prelinger films (and Computer Chronicles/Netcafe episodes). It just isn't the same on a computer monitor in a window... :)

I, too am getting a massive collection going. I think my way sounds easier. I just download them and burn them to CD's. With Nero I can burn VCD's, which are video CD's and they play on my DVD player. The DVD player is a $42 special from Walmart, so I assume they would play on any DVD player... and can be taken to anyone elses house that has a DVD player..
Just a thought.
